CHICAGO HEIGHTS (CBS) – Two Chicago Heights men have been arrested on felony drug charges, after police and the DEA wrapped up an 8-month undercover investigation.

WBBM Newsradio’s Mike Krauser reports Chicago Heights Police Chief Charles Guiliani called it one of the biggest drug takedowns in the south suburb in some time.

“Seven pounds of cocaine, one pound of heroin, one loaded .50-caliber semiautomatic handgun, one AK-47 assault rifle,” he said.

DEA Special Agent in Charge Jack Riley said “you’re not going turkey hunting with that gun.”

“I’ve never seen these type of guns do good,” he said.

Juan Serrano and Raul Dominguez, were facing felony drug charges after the bust.

Authorities also recovered a Nissan with hidden compartments for drugs.

Chicago Heights Police Lt. David Basile said, “what the driver does is place his foot on the brake and/or the clutch, move the heaters on, hit two switches – one to move the seat up, and then he’ll hit another switch.”

Doing that would open up the speakers in the back of the car to access the hidden compartments.
